The latest newsletter from Lightmoor Press is advertising what is apparently the first ever proper history of this legendary railway. Written by Michael Whitehouse, son of the great railway photographer Patrick, it is going to be over 350 pages (!), covering the social history of the area as well as the railway and will include lots of photos, maps and drawings too.

 Due out in February/March next year. Definitely one to look forward to.

It sound like the new book may partially duplicate "The Dingle Train" David Rowlands, Walther McGrath and Tom Francis Plateway Press 1995 which is well worth looking out for! https://www.amazon.com/Dingle-Train-David-Rowlands/dp/1871980275

The book is ideal for the modeler including a short history of the line, social history, a large section of photos drawings and photos of locos, coaches and freight stock and a detailed history of each locomotive.

The Tralee and Dingle Railway David Rowland Bradford Barton 1977 is probably the best source of photos of the line locos and stock copies available of Amazon from $17  https://www.amazon.com/Tralee-Dingle-Railway-David-Rowlands/dp/0851532675

I used 'The Dingle Train" as a reference for building my models of 3T & 6T
